Salt of the Earth

Hello foodies. Happy memorial day in America and Happy Monday to everyone. So today I am fascinated by Salt. acblog52713

 

It’s literal, and metaphoric meaning. Salt  helps heighten the taste of things. My first real memory of salt was when I was about 7 years old. I heard the story of LOT’S wife turning around and turning to salt. I remember I did not want salt in my food because in my odd little mind, all the salt we use was a part of lots wife LITERALLY) lol. YAH! kids do have a wild imagination. Growing up in Nigeria we mostly used sea salt, but then iodized salt came into our system and became a “thing” and now that I am here, I am back to sea salt because for me it’s about eating as natural as possible when you can help it and when it is affordable. As I grow and learn about foods, their properties and effects on our body,  my discovery about idolized salt versus sea salt made me choose sea salt as my new salting choice. It took some time to get used to the measurement as with sea salt, it seems you need more that with iodized salt. I use SEA SALT for one simple reason: it is salt in and from it’s natural state, that is not processed. And that works for my body.

So do share with us. Do you use sea salt or iodized salt?

Have a great week. And remember in all that you choose to nourish your body with,

SINFUL FRIDAY: Lips and Bottles

So it’s SINFUL Friday. And today’s FOOD SIN we are ALLL guilty of. Even in countries where there is no refrigerator. As long as there is a bottle and your lips are close, you have taken the plunge into the SIN OF BACKWASH. DON”T DO IT. LOL. Get a hold of yourself now would ya! lol yes, we have all done it at one point or another. I am so guilty of it. it takes every will power not to do it every-time lol. And every-time you are home alone and someone is not so close to you, you grab that bottle and chug it real fast too, while you try no to choke lol. This bad habit needs to have a world “STOP THE BACKWASH YEAR”. No, cleaning the cover after you drink, does not make a difference lol stop lying to yourself. Get a glass and pour. It will take you 1.2 seconds more. Plus you don’t get to spread germs or bacteria to those you love with that BACKWASH. So foodies, grab a glass stop the madness. Stop drinking from the bottle. Happy Friday. 🙂foodsin3
